"Southern Hospitality"is a phrase that i've heard many times but never really knew what it meant.When I would hear it it made me think of colonel Sanders and aunt Jemima..don't know why but you get the picture right?..growing up in So Cal most of my life i'm used to stuck up,snobby,arrogant and disrespectful people,not to sterotype there are plenty of nice people in California, but there are just as many assholes too!..Well people are different down in Georgia and probably the south in general..Nice,respectful,courteous and helpful, I really could go on and on..anyway on to my post.. my reason for going was to attend a competition BBQ school at Myron Mixon's house.We had a few extra days in Atlanta before going down to Unadilla,so i took a bunch of pictures to share with all of you that read this blog..hope you enjoy!
